Col­lege football and golf al­ways seem to go to­gether, and with the grid­iron sea­son well un­der­way, Im­pe­rial head­wear is com­mem­o­rat­ing the cur­rent cam­paign with a new line of unique de­signs called the Tailgate Col­lec­tion. In a de­par­ture from the tra­di­tional school logo or mas­cot on this col­lec­tion of preppy cot­ton base­ball, Ox­ford bucket hats and Tour vi­sors, the Tailgate col­lec­tion fea­tures the col­ors of some of the most well-known col­leges in Amer­ica with an out­line of the school’s re­spec­tive state and one of its defin­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics.

The states in­cluded in the col­lec­tion are: Alabama, Cal­i­for­nia, Florida, Ge­or­gia, Ken­tucky, Louisiana, Mis­sis­sippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Ok­la­homa, South Carolina, Ten­nessee, Texas and Vir­ginia.

“Our Tailgate Col­lec­tion is a state pride themed line of head­wear,” noted David Shaf­fer, di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing at Im­pe­rial Head­wear. “Any­body who wants to show their loy­alty on game day, at a party, or any other day of the week will en­joy this new col­lec­tion of preppy caps. It’s a per­fect way to show your team spirit this sea­son.”

A unique fea­ture of these hats is that while the out­line of the state re­mains con­stant in the col­lec­tions for each of the 14 states avail­able, the school col­ors of the hat and logo are avail­able for many of the most pop­u­lar ma­jor col­leges in those states so that fans can where their school col­ors and pro­mote their home state at the same time. The hats have a clas­sic look and fit that most col­lege football fans will en­joy. They are avail­able on-line or at many fine golf shops that carry Im­pe­rial head­wear.

It is a pretty sim­ple idea re­ally. But ap­par­ently Harry Briggs was the first per­son to put a full-fledged align­ment aid “on ball” for prac­tic­ing putting and short game me­chan­ics. He now has in­tro­duced his Sight Ball train­ing aid golf ball that has mark­ings to help play­ers align their eyes, feet, shoul­ders and put­ter to pro­duce bet­ter me­chan­ics in the short game.

Sight Ball has six sights, or tar­gets--four of which are used to help the golfer to cor­rectly align them­selves with the ball. One points in the de­sired di­rec­tion of the ball, one points up­ward to­ward the golfer’s face as they look down, another at the feet to gauge proper stance, and the last lines up with the club at the back of the ball.

The in­ten­tion is for a player us­ing the ball dur­ing prac­tice to be­gin by point­ing a sight to­ward the tar­get and one face up to­ward the golfer. The golfer also looks at a sight point­ing at his or her feet to get the cor­rect stance and then
